Mapping the Origins Debate


Mapping the Origins Debate Book Cover[Book, 2012] by Gerald Rau. Readers are presented with an overview of six models used within the Christian community when it comes to origins: naturalistic evolution, non-teleological evolution, planned evolution, directed evolution, old-earth creationism, and young-earth creationism. The author summarizes his purpose for the book: “Currently there are at least six major classes of models explaining the origin of the universe, life, species and humans, but few people can clearly describe more than two or three of them. In this book you will find (1) an overview of the models, (2) the evidence that each uses to justify its position, and (3) what data each refuses to allow as evidence and why.
